Pyrrhus of Epirus was a Greek king who was considered to be one the great commanders of all-time despite not being the wisest among his peers. It’s for the latter reason his name is given to the type of decision-making that can result in a win whilst suffering severe losses: a Pyrrhic victory. If the Colorado Rockies want to get…...

It’s a classic statement that’s been uttered countless times over and it’s yet to be proven inaccurate. Whenever you go to the ballpark, you’re guaranteed to see something you’ve never seen before. For fans of the Colorado Rockies, it’s a streak of 4,534 games that began on April 5, 1993 and it shouldn’t end anytime soon. This list may not...

Colorado dropped the interim from his title on Saturday to name Bill Schmidt as the club’s fourth general manager, following in the footsteps of Bob Gebhard, Dan O’Dowd and Jeff Bridich. “After five months as our interim general manager, it became increasingly clear that Bill was the right person to lead this franchise forward,” said Colorado Rockies President and Chief...

Roughly 13 times each season, Nolan Arenado returned from a road trip and settled into his place downtown located within walking distance of Coors Field. When arriving for the next day’s game, he’d walk beneath the cavernous tunnels of the ballpark and take a right turn to the home clubhouse. On Thursday, for the first time, he turned left. “It’s...

Dick Monfort will remain the primary owner for the foreseeable future and the most likely scenario is that his son, Walker, takes over when the time comes. While there is nothing inherently wrong with calling for a...

Hello Colorado Rockies fans. I would ask how you are doing but we all know the answer to that question. Some fans may have finally found their way into some sort of optimism in this current mess but it would be more than a stretch to say anyone is happy about where this team stands. Many have already declared their fandom dead. Others have simply put it on hold. The debate rages about whether to boycott the team, what that would even truly look like, and how impactful it would be. At the center of that debate stands a difficult question that everyone has to answer for themselves; How do I root for the Rockies… without rooting for the Rockies?…

It’s not that they did it, it’s how and why.

The reported trade of Nolan Arenado to the St. Louis Cardinals is hitting everyone in the Rocky Mountain in about the same way. While all the elements of the deal haven’t been finalized, the speculated details are more than enough to know this will be bad for the organization in every single way. Some positives can come from this, but it seems light years away from the present. With hundreds of angles from which this can be viewed, there will be no shortage of stories to file in the days and weeks ahead. In the wake of this monumental move will be a lot of innocent bystanders, such as current Colorado players faced with answering questions about Arenado’s departure and…
